we are back now with what to do if you are caught in a stampede. over the weekend, there was a frightening scene in the d.c. pride parade. several people injured trying to escape during a gun scare. now there are steps you can take to help protect yourself in a crushing crowd. our chief national corespondent matt gutman has more on that. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, robin. crowds are a part of every day life. unfortunately so are crowd crazes and crowd crushes.
7:41 am
what we saw in washington, d.c., that was a stampede in which people could have gotten trampled. a crowd crush can happen. so many people densely packed it can asphyxiate you. there are so many things you can do, including learning how to stand protectively. chaos at the d.c. pride parade. >> what happened? >> there is a man with a gun. >> reporter: reports of man with a gun. >> that is when people took off like crazy. >> reporter: the ensuing stampede sending seven people to the hospital. even knocking down a child. >> his mom was trying to pick him up off the ground as people were stepping on him. >> reporter: authorities determined there were not shots fired. while nobody was killed, it's an all too familiar scene. when masses of people rush to the same place, it can almost
7:42 am
insuran instantly become every man for himself. this is what can happen when it occurs indoors. people stacked six feet high after more than 1,000 people tried to escape through one small exit at a chicago nightclub in 2003. 21 people would die from asphyxiation in that crush. so to learn how to escape when a crowd turns to chaos, i drop myself smack into the middle of the biggest one i can find. we are in new orleans here during mardi gras. if panic broke out here, we would be in trouble. >> there's nowhere to go right now. we're completely sandwiched. >> reporter: we brought along paul werther. he said always have a plan. what you are looking for? >> i have to visualize, what if something happens? where will i go? >> reporter: he said when a crowd like this erupts, it will flow like a river. you won't be able to go upstream. if you drop something, leave it. move at an angle to the side and
7:43 am
look for cover, duck behind a car, a garbage can, light post. even a doorway can put a barrier between and you everyone else. >> anything. just a few inches. it helps. >> even the wall. >> reporter: he says it's critical to stay on your feet. we recruit students at loyola university, in new orleans. and against my better judgment, i ask them to literally run me over. before we get to that, the art of staying on your feet. just one small push -- well, it can be enough to throw just a handful of people off balance. what is amazing about that, one person pushed and then a crowd of 15, 20 people gets pushed together. and your steps are so small, we are all stumbling on each othe now, our expert shows you a better way to stand. legs staggered for balance. arms up like a boxer. in super dense crowds, it will help protect your heart and
7:44 am
lungs from potentially thousands of pounds of chest-crushing pressure. it's surprisingly effective, and possibly life-saving. that is a lot better, huh? he said if you fall over, stay off your back and stomach. here is why. >> lie down on me like you would do if you got knocked down too. okay with the other guy, i can't breathe. my lungs are compressed. you're on my heart. >> reporter: he says do everything you can to get up. if you can't, lay on your side to protect your most vital organs. your lungs and heart and cover your head. >> this is about living or dying. >> yeah. >> reporter: now it's my turn. here goes nothing. a couple kicks to the ribs but i'm okay. i can tell that no one could see me. all i could see was feet. there were a couple stumbles. >> i stepped on you, sorry. >> reporter: take it from me, if this were real, this is not where you would want to be.
7:45 am
if you're in an indoor place, you generally want to try to leave through the exit that you came in on, but in case of an emergency, that exit may be blocked or closed or something may happen. so if you are in an unfamiliar place, and we are in clifton's, the iconic nightclub in l.a. take your nose out of your phones. start looking up. look for red or green exit signs. sometimes they might be in the back of the bar. this one leads outside to safety. another issue, foot wear. don't wear flip-flops. if you have to run, you can't in flip-flops. the last thing, from the experts, trust your spidy sense. if you feel like a crowd is getting out of hand, just get out of there. >> trust your spidy sense. matt,thanks very much for that. >> i look for the exit in here. we go to lunch. you haven't seen this crew. they will run you over. coming up, we have the "play of the day." we'll be right back.

8:19 am
prostate cancer. not a surprise that bmi, body mass index, increased the risk. it did overall for advanced and fatal, but not the total number of prostate. very interesting. >> what is the link between obesity and kacancer? >> a couple of things. when you have excess body fat, it increases and changes metabolism, hormonal mediators, inflammatory environment. it can lead to insulin resistan resistance. that can fuel cancer and when you look at the body head to toe. there are 13 obesity-related cancers like a certain type of brain cancer, thyroid, breast, endo meet yal all the way to the g.i. tract. most people think heart disease, and you have to think cancer. >> being a doctor and knew nutrition nutritionalist, you're going to advise us. >> don't gain weight. make this a priority because if

there needed to be an industry standard for the devices. >> reporter: engineers walk us through a set of stands that are part of the standard. one of the tests that is extremely important is the venting test. here, they intentionally disable the battery's safety feature that prevents it from overcharging and then you continue to charge it until it explodes. watch it again as this e-cigarette begins to overheat. whoa. through this test, ul is making sure in in the event of battery malfunctions, the pressure would go away from the user's face and stay intact, keeping the users safe. will this surpass or fail? >> that would lead us to be in n noncompliance there. >> reporter: the vapor technology association says we can't make changes to products here in the u.s. without going through the fda's undefined and multiyear process.

your government needs to catch up fast. the fda, the government agency in charge of regulating e-cigarettes, says it encourages them to address issues to discuss options on how they can do so in a timely fashion and the fda will consider each situation on a case by case basis. and there are some steps the fda recommends users take to help prevent possible explosions like keep loose batteries in a case to prevent contact with metal objects and never, ever charge a vap device with a phone or tablet charger. they're just very different. do your research. >> the fda and the industry need to get on the same page. coming up, billy porter is here live. we'll be right back. we'll be right back.
